LG launches new OLED TV with AI Home Board

LG Electronics has invented an OLED TV with an Artificial Intelligence Home Board.

This means that people can use their remote control to use other devices in the home such as an air purifier, all while watching their favourite shows.

Their new TVs are 86 inches and feature an Alpha 9 Gen 2 processor for high quality viewing.

It's also able to connect up to Apple AirPlay, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

The new TV will launch in March in the US and South Korea, before moving to Europe and beyond.

Kwon Bong-seok, the president of LG Electronics' mobile communications and home entertainment companies, said: "LG continues to push the boundaries of TV technological innovation, as can clearly be seen from our premium TV lineup for 2019.

"LG's advanced AI technologies to improve picture and sound, enrich and expand the viewing experience."

Meanwhile, LG's rollable OLED TV R will "go beyond" what a "traditional TV" can achieve.

The South Korean company unveiled their new product - which can be folded away to create more space in a living space - at the CES press conference in January, and revealed it will be sent to market within the next 12 months in South Korea.

LG said it "liberates users from the limitations of the wall and frees them to curate their own personal space which no longer needs to be reserved full time for TV viewing."

David VanderWaal, Senior Vice president of Marketing at LG in the US, continued: "LG's rollable OLED TV goes beyond what a TV could traditionally offer.

"It brings the freedom of design to the space, without the limitations of a wall. This offers a never before achieved level of immersion."

There were questions over the durability of the product, but Han Sang-beom, Vice Chairman of LG Display, reassured attendees that the product is strong enough to be rolled out "100,000 times".

He said: "We are so confident that there will be no durability issues of the rollable TV because it was durable enough to be rolled 100,000 times through our test."
